The center of gravity for China’s e-commerce growth is gradually shifting from metropolitans in the east coast to the landlocked provinces in the country’s central and western region, according to a recent report by Alibaba Group.

In the first 11 months of 2017, western China’s Gansu, Guizhou province and Tibet Autonomous Region reported the highest growth in online retail sales among China’s total 31 provinces and regions, said Alibaba in its report on China’s e-commerce development.
